A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step
A six day's transformational (Rites of Passage Experiences) ROPES camp came to a close on November 24th 2018 at Mt. Longonot National Park. The camp attracted 21 teenagers comprising of 9 girls and 13 boys accompanied by 8 counselors. Two teenagers gave their lives to Christ while rededicated her life to Christ. The 21 covered topics like; Marks of childhood & adulthood, Go for it, you can do it, Jijue jirekebishe (Decision Making), My future my Choice, Purity & High School life, Say it as It is and Personality Test/ Temperament among others. In addition, the group had a personal quiet time with God, group devotion, morning jogging, and team building activities on daily basis. On the fourth day, the boys and girls with their counselors participated in a 62 km mountain climbing experience with their bag pack and tents for 12 hours. The fifth day the Ropers learnt about the importance of fasting after which a 12 hour prayer and fasting ensued. This stretched the team physically in an effort to build their spiritual being. Afterwards, in the evening the girls had a learning experience of slaughtering chickens while boys slaughtered a goat with the guidance from male counselors. ROPES program targets teenagers especially the eighth grade students and helps them transition from childhood to adulthood as they prepare to join High Schools. The program runs yearly equipping teenagers along with their parents with training's based on different topics culminating with a camp towards the end of the year to celebrate their achievement. CCP would like to appreciate parents/guardians who supported the 21 have an experience to learn from and remember. The organization also appreciates the staff for making a difference in the lives of the children. This is the seventh camp since CCP started ROPES program. The organization hopes and prays that the boys and girls become responsible young adults as they transition from childhood to adulthood.
